Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

This clearly articulated statement offers a hopeful and workable approach to conflict—that eternally beleaguering human situation.

John Paul Lederach is internationally recognized for his breakthough thinking and action related to conflict on all levels—person-to-person, factions within communities, warring nations.

He explores why "conflict transformation" is more appropriate than "conflict resolution" or "management." But he refuses to be drawn into impractical idealism.

Conflict Transformation is an idea with a deep reach. Its practice, says Lederach, requires "both solutions and social change." It asks not simply, "How do we end something not desired?", but "How do we end something destructive and build something desired?" How do we deal with the immediate crisis, as well as the long-term situation? What disciplines make such thinking and practices possible?

John Paul Lederach, now a scholar with the Joan Kroc Institute of Conflict Studies at the University of Notre Dame and a Distinguished Scholar with the Conflict Transformation Program at Eastern Mennonite University, writes out of his more than 20 years of work in Central America, in Asia, Africa, Central Asia, and North America.

This book contains useful advice for addressing many social or interpersonal conflict situations in your life. It presents advice that has helped me to change the way I think about conflict -- mainly, the author emphasizes seeing conflict events as potentials for social transformation, rather than simply something to end or resolve. He promises some big airy ideas, and he makes good on his promise with some concrete examples at the end. (I did find myself wishing for more of these.)

Though short, this is not an easy book to read. But changing habitual ways of speaking and acting is never easy. We all need the skills explained in this book, especially those of us (like teachers) who are responsible for the workings of a group of people.

The book was a starting point for a course. The references in back were very helpful. The book and references together painted a better more complete picture. I would recommend this book.

This slender volume is a quick read, well worded so that its ideas can be readily ubderstood. The basic principles articulared are worth deep reflection and I find them coming to mind in a variety of situations. Especially valuable is the handling dilemmas which seem either-or, yet best call for affirmation of both-and; and also the value of stretching to see how to handle immediate crises while seeing deeper, more long term issues which give rise to them. I find this book coming back to mind quite occasionally.
